The wedding and the reception were held in the same place for a candlelight ceremony, which was gorgeous. Now keep in mind that I was the one that was taking these pictures with my low light challenged camera, in a candlelit ballroom Also, I didn't get pictures of everything that I wanted. The wedding party went out before the wedding to take pictures around the city, and then Family pictures were at 4:30 in the hotel lobby. Weddings have certainly changed over the years. The ceremony was at 6pm. More pictures!
The flowers were gorgeous, orange Calla lilies, and orchids of some type. Cherise was a beautiful bride.

Here is my family, left to right, Scott, my husband, me, Todd, Cherise, Chris, my other son and the Best Man, and Emily, my daughter-in-law. My granddaughter, Aria, wouldn't get in the picture, because she has a knee brace on her leg, due to a torn patellar tendon. That's another whole story.

This is my only picture of the cake, which was beautiful. It was Carrot Cake with Hazelnut filling. My son doesn't like chocolate, so they compromised.
The Couple, so cute!

Off to take more pictures!
Obviously, I missed many pictures. The ceremony was candlelight, with low light, as well as the reception. Todd and Cherise had a "Sweetheart Table", just for the two of them, instead of a head table with the entire Bridal Party, which was 5 Bridesmaids, 5 Groomsmen, and two ushers! I never got a picture of that either, Also, they had a wonderful 12 member band, which played every kind of music, and the dance floor was crowded all evening. So many memories, and the evening flew by so fast, and before you know it, the evening was over. Now, Cherise's Mom and I will be sharing pictures back and forth, until we see the pictures from the photographer. More pictures to come later, I'm sure!
For now, I need to take it easy, and remember that beautiful wedding. Sounds good, but today I'm going to make Halloween cupcakes, with my Friend, Barb, and her grandchildren.
